January favourites 2016

Hey guys!

Today I'll be sharing some things I've been loving this month!

First of all the soap and glory heck of a blot powder is so good! I've recently discovered it and I've been using it ever since. It's light and translucent which I prefer because it dosent look cakey or anything or just lightly dusts onto your face and I just really love it, it's perfect for oily skin aswell, if I wear this powder I don't have to top up until about 6-8 hours later which is amazing for me. 

Next of all I love the anastasia Beverly Hills self made palette, now I think I've mentioned this product on my blog before and absolutely love it. My favourite shade is 'hot and cold'. That's all I've been wearing on my eyelids for pretty much the whole month because it's so easy and pretty and makes such a difference to my makeup look. 

Then of course the Loreal true match foundation is my holy grail! It is so good and I can't hype on about it enough, I much prefer it to my Mac foundations because It's not as cakey and it is buildable so I can settle for a lovely light coverage  or a heavy coverage depending on what my skin is like and all that jazz. It's matte aswell and overall it's a great all rounder for me! 

Then my Mac blusher in the shade 'mocha' is beautiful. It is a great blusher to wear all day every day on any occasion and honestly it's quite natural on the cheeks and it lasts all day without moving. I definitely want to get more of these.

The 'Maybelline lash sensational' mascara is actually really good. At first I tried this and I wasn't very impressed but I put it on the other day and it gave me Volumous curled lashes and I love it now! I can see why everyone hyped over this!

The elf ' wet gloss lash and brow mascara' is so good aswell, I don't really use the lash side but I use the brow side to set my brows in place everyday. It sets them perfectly without budging and it's so cheap aswell, when I got it I know it was £1.99 but now I think the price has slightly gone up but it's still very affordable for how good it is, mine has actually just run out so I need to purchase another one badly.

The Mac 'taupe' lipstick is so lovely, it's a browny nude colour and I find it to be perfect for the night time and it's also matte which is my favourite!

Then guys... I have found the best game ever! It's called colour switch and it's such a quick fun annoying game, my highest is score 12!

If you didn't already know me and my lil sister are the biggest eastenders fans going ... The storyline is so good at the moment and I feel so sorry for Stacey and Martin!

The reason behind my blog address

Hey guys!

So basically I wanted to talk to you guys about my blog address name. 

As you know it is 'aboutmeobvs' and I would ideally want it to be called 'beauty and fashion geek'. I basically chose 'aboutmeobvs' because my first ever post was 'about me' and I thought you had to make the address for that specific post, I didn't realise it was the actual  address for my blog page. 

I just wanted to get that out there because my address dosent fit in with beauty or anything and it might seem strange but hopefully I can change it soon lol 

Thank you for reading xxx

Hey Guys!

Today I'm going to be sharing with you a very glam bronzed makeup look that will be perfect in the evening. I really like this look because its every warm and such a easy look.

This is the side that is full on glam

This is before and after 

Products used on face:

- Rimmel stay matte foundation (evens out skin tone so much as you can see in pictures!).

- Mac prep and prime highlighter/concealer 'light boost' under my eyes, under my eyebrows to define them and also on my chin and forehead to brighten it up. 

- soap and glory one heck of a blot power and I applied it lightly with the Mac 134 brush.

- Elf blush palette in 'light' I used the shade in bottem right corner with my real techniques blush brush.

- Collection bronze glow bronzer in the shade 'shimmering medium'.

- Rimmel good to glow highlighter in 'soho glow' I added this on top of the benefit highlighter to make it stand out. 

Products used on eyes:

- Maybelline fit me concealer shade '15' as a base to cover up any veins etc. 

- Zoeva Cocoa blend palette, firstly I used the shade 'substitution for love' all over my lid, crease and on my bottem lash line to set a warm base. I then went ahead and applied the shade 'freshly toasted' into my crease and blended it out with a fluffy blending brush and it made the eye really warm which is the look I was going for. Then I added the shade 'pure ganache' onto my lid and kept on packing the colour on. ( To make it more  pigmented add Mac fix plus or water to your brush before applying the eyeshadow).
